Ensuring the accuracy and precision of measurements, regardless of the industry, requires the calibration of scales. This involves monitoring the scale over time and identifying any normal wear and tear that might cause measurement errors, even from the slightest vibrations. Regular calibration of scales is crucial to guarantee proper weighing and maintain measurement accuracy.
1.) To ensure accurate measurements, certain scales utilize self-calibrating mechanisms which enable them to perform internal calibration and verify their own precision.
2.) On the other hand, external calibration is conducted by expert scale technicians who employ calibration masses, or test weights, to evaluate the accuracy of the scales with varying weights and measure their consistency.
Accurate scale readings are key to the success of your business, which is why calibrations are crucial. The frequency of calibration will depend on the type and model of your scales, as well as factors such as usage and environmental conditions. At the very least, you should be calibrating your scales annually; however, it could be necessary to do so as often as once a month.
Professional technicians will place certified test weights, otherwise known as calibration weights, on your scale and inspect to verify that the scale indicator displays the correct weight. If any discrepancies are found, they will make necessary repairs or adjustments until the scale has been properly calibrated. Upon completion of calibration, they will provide you with a certificate attesting to its accuracy.
The consequences of not calibrating scales can be severe, impacting a business’s operations, financials, and safety. Inaccurate measurements can lead to product quality issues, customer complaints, financial losses through stock inaccuracies, regulatory violations with associated fines, and safety concerns. These consequences can affect the overall success of the business, affecting its reputation, reliability, and potential profitability. Proper recurrent calibration ensures accurate measurements and prevents avoidable consequences, emphasizing the necessity for conducting routine scale calibrations.
A team of professional technicians will check your scale using certified calibration weights and inspect to ensure that the display is accurate. If any discrepancies are found, they will make necessary repairs or adjustments until the scale is properly calibrated. Once complete, a certificate attesting to its accuracy will be issued.
When choosing a scale calibration company, it is important to make sure that the company has an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation and performs calibrations that are traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). To ensure quality results, look for a reputable business with experience in the field and a broad range of capabilities. With these considerations in mind, you can ensure that your scale calibrations are accurate and reliable.
